Welcome to the introductory thread for Minecraft skin making team Top Notch!


Render by PixelFrosty


About

Team Top Notch was founded to create top-notch quality Minecraft skins for free for the Minecraft community. With the increasing popularity of Minecraft Marketplace, we've seen a lot of great skin artists shift their efforts towards creating content which is exclusive for a paying audience. At team Top Notch, we want to do things differently.

Our team will be working on group projects to release skin packs following a certain theme or scheme. Aside from our members who are very skilled at making skins already, we guide a few apprentices in the process of becoming just as good! So we're not just a team that creates content, but also a dedicated learning community.

I've always been a fan of PixekFrosty, DinowCookie, and many other people in this group! Now that they're one big group I might as well cry from the joy... I was never a huge cryer...

Agh. Looks like you aren't accepting any new members or apprentices. But I do know a thing or two about semi-realistic shading.

Hey!

I'm sorry but I am currently not accepting any new apprentices to join the team. Keep an eye out though, for when we open up applications again in the future. (Probably after the first or second project is released).

Thank you for taking interest though. :D

Hello. I am Miku, owner of the PMC Skin Club. I would like to say that your idea for this club is amazing, and I would like to ask if I could use a similar skin pack project idea for the PMCSC. I promise to give you credit and twist it up a bit so it is not a direct copy. If you do not let me that is perfectly fine, I understand.

Also, I want to just say this is an AMAZING club name. Great name, I love it.

Hey!

I have no problems whatsoever with your club also creating skin packs and projects together. The more free Minecraft skins, the better. ^_^ Just try and be creative about it in your own way.

Also I am glad you like the name :D I'm glad I thought of it too, it seems super fitting. :)

Good question, the primary goal is to learn and have fun in our free time. As mentioned I will be looking into ways to accept donations and financial support from the community, but for now that's only an idea, and if it's going to happen, it will probably not be much.

I'm looking to produce great-quality free content, and I can't really pay members if I don't sell things, unless people willingly donate.

I hope that answered your question. :)

1. Zombie / Primarina / Perfect Cell / OOF / Some works in progress.

2. Yes, definitely.

3. Usually one or two per week (A skin normally takes 1-4 hours total, but I normally spread it out over a period of a few days).

4. I currently have little free time, but I will be almost completely free post-exams.

5. I am a member of the PMC Skin Club.

  1. Toxic | Empty Eyes | Ringleader | Elf | Fighter | Aurora | Random Example

  2. Of course :)
  3. If necessary, and given enough advanced warning, I could probably make up to 5 skins within a day. My 'leisurely' pace is probably something closer to 1 a week, but sometimes I make 1 each day for a few days in a row.
  4. I am enrolled in online education and I do work around the house, as long as I am given a somewhat flexible schedule to work with I should be able to adjust accordingly to fit in time to make skins each week, if not every day.
  5. Yes, I am a part of The PMC Skin Club.

Your skins are very nice, and it'd be great to have you on board, but I understand if you're unable to join in right now.

Please remember this team if you ever get some more free time in your schedule! :D

Hey DinowCookie, I would recommend you post things intended to be used for Bedrock Edition as well to promote free, quality content on the Bedrock platform. The more you ignore the bedrock community, the more they lose and the more the "minecraft store" wins. Help them all!

Free skins that are available for Java, can also be used in the Windows 10 bedrock edition of Minecraft. I however cannot simply add free skins to the Minecraft marketplace/bedrock edition.. There are rules and contracts which prevent us from doing that.

However much I wish I could share content for free with the rest of the Bedrock community, I simply cannot do that at this point in time.

It's not that skins need to be submitted to the marketplace. They should be advertised for use on win10 and PE as well though. People spend waaay too much money on poor quality skins from packs when they can just look them up!

Does PE allow for free skins to be uploaded to the game? I never knew!

And I do agree with you, these skins are available for any version of Minecraft which you can upload a free skin to. :)

I appreciate your interest. :) Judging from the points you mention I agree it probably wouldn't be the right time for you to join this project. But luckily, PMC has a lot more fun activities and groups to join, to enjoy skin making in different ways! ^_^

You know, I really don't know much about skins in general, and hope to one day be able to make whatever type of skin I want. I am trying to make myself a naval officer or a spacex engineer... I know almost nothing about making skins, but I do know there is a specific layout for the skin (I have fiddled with modding and know blender can be helpful)




If you wish for me to join, I have almost every day but sunday and late nights free (EST)

A pace for a skin, depending on quality depends on time constraints. One a day, is doable, however 2-3 a week for detail never hurts.

I work with me a few fellow youtubers, on my realms. so my time is split between there and my own custom creations.




I have been browsing around PMC for projects and stuff to fill my time with, I want to dedicate time to many projects to progress my knowledge in many aspects.




I have no skins ever hand made.

However I do know, that blending colors (depending on what you want to achieve) is best to have a pallet, and fading from that pallet is around how I make my skins. but I have nothing I feel worth showing haha.
